School Chart Chronicling the History of the Swastika, Das Hakenkreuz als sonnbild in der Geschichte (Item GEN 12-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is a pictorial chart that illustrates the use of the swastika down through the ages in the history of Aryan people. The chart was probably put together in the mid 1920s, when Adolf Hitler first started showing the symbol in the Nazi flags and ceremonial displays. So constant was the exhibition of this hooked cross, that the educational system felt compelled to instruct the youngsters about its origins. Of course, the same chart was no doubt used right into the 1930s and 1940s, as well. The chart was a marvelous teaching aid for the students, and it was produced by a Dresden firm. The chart measures 39 x 28 inches and is produced in a fine heavy oilcloth (not paper). When opened it’s supported with two wooden shafts that hold it in position. Below all the pictures numbers can be seen that correspond to the pictures with explanations after each one. There are 44 pictures and an equal amount of the explanations. The chart is very colorful, and the educational value is practically sacrosanct, even today. Items shown with the swastika include pottery, jewelry, coins, lances, swords, and decorative architectural embellishments from ancient Roman and Germanic sources. It is very interesting to observe the varieties and shapes of the swastikas through the centuries. There were curved, mobile, stationary, and short-armed swastikas. Some were formed by horses heads, human legs, and vegetation motifs used by the ancients. This was practically a universal design, but in this case only the Germanic and Teutonic usage is explored. The chart is in perfect condition and is a very rare museum offering.

Der Stürmer, Julius Streicher’s Newspaper Byline in German Weekly Gazette with Struggle and Truth (Item GEN 12-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is the November 1942 issue of the anti-Semitic newspaper whose motto each week was “Die Juden sind unser Unglück,” “The Jews are our misfortune.” Yes, the paper was full of hate, but it was paper and propaganda. The rope put around the neck of Herr Streicher was hate also, but it was not paper, nor was it propaganda. It was an instrument of death and torture and this man was not able to be convicted of any war crime. He was hanged by the neck for 22 minutes of strangulation for his being the founder and editor of a newspaper. In other words, thought crime vis-à-vis George Orwell (1984). Regardless whether you disagree with Der Stürmer, or even find it despicable, it certainly should not have led to the ghastly execution of this man by the tribunal. It set a terrible precedent that may be repeated in the future of this planet. This edition of Der Stürmer is in very fine condition and is considered very rare today. Eight pages are devoted to anti-Jewish text and pictures measuring 12 x 17 inches. The headlines in red reads “Der Talmud ist nicht tot!,” “The Talmud is Not Dead.” Streicher taught that the Babylonian Talmud was the rabbinical law that taught the Jews their anti-Aryan and antisocial attitudes (and more). This is a necessary addition to a complete NS collection.

Another Issue of Der Sturmer The German Weekly (with a subtitle of Struggle and Truth) 19 July 1940 (Item GEN 12-2A)

DESCRIPTION: Like the above paper at GEN 12-2, this is an issue of the rarest newspaper in the collector's world today. Why so rare? Because just about every issue in Germany was destroyed after the war. It was practically a felony to own one. This issue was one grabbed by an American GI in Kaiserslautern in 1945 -- luckily he kept it in good shape through the years. This was #47 in the year 1940. See further explanation in the description for the one above. If the price is shocking it is precisely because of the extreme rarity of these Sturmer Zeitung. It has cartoons, photos of Jewish leaders, the poor and the rich. Many advertisements are seen in the pages such as the Walther gun manufacturer, Erma, Hohner Harmonicas, etc. The paper was somewhat of an embarrassment to the N.S. Party because they tried to curtail blatant anti-Semitism before the eyes of the world. At one time Adolf Hitler declared that Der Sturmer was his favorite newspaper but later recanted when the N.S. Party leadership wanted it banned, and it was in fact not banned but the editor Julius Streicher was removed as a Gauleiter and never had any say in anything after 1938. He did not plan aggressive war. He had nothing to do with concentration camps or the invasion on nations. Yet he was hung by the neck for a horrible 20 some minutes from the purposely botched execution by Master Sgt John C. Woods. He couldn’t be actually accused of any war crime so the ‘Judges” decided he was to be charged with “crimes against humanity.”  If publishing books and newspapers alone is to be termed crimes against humanity, does this not become the most dangerous precedent to emerge from that infamous trial? What should be the verdict and sentence of, for instance, a president or prime minister who in their call for regime change in sovereign nations and following it up with genocidal war perpetrated against former Allies? Perhaps these powerful individual could be indicted for all the charges that were leveled at Nuremberg? Streicher’s final declaration was "The Bolsheviks will hang you one day. Heil Hitler.”- Purim Fest 1946! The murder of this man regardless of his beliefs was an act of revenge that had nothing to do with ‘war crimes.’ I suppose I will be assailed by liberals and neo-conservatives both for my thought. “Dangerous thoughts” as evidenced by that execution at Nuremberg October 16, 1946.

The paper is in remarkably good condition, it measures 15 x13. There are some penciled notes at the top of the title page -- these could be removed or retained.  The copy seen above this one sold for $900.00, I believe. We price this one at $570.00. We know it sounds expensive for a paper but it is not only rare and particularly impossible to find, but most desirable to collectors.

PRICE: $570.00

Honorary Prize for Costume Display, 1937; Austria Trachtenfest (Item GEN 12-3)

DESCRIPTION: This porcelain lady was an honorary prize for competition in the showing of Trachten, or traditional costume. The figure represents a Tracht of the Austrian South Tirol, although it was before the Austrian Anschluss. The figure says on its base “Reichstrachtenfest.” The use of “Reich” denotes empire, a word seldom used before the amalgamation with Germany in 1938. The full inscription at the base is “Reichstrachtenfest Ebensee 1937 Österreich,” which means “Reich's traditional costume celebration in the area of Ebensee in 1937.” Inside it says in painted letters “Ehrenpreis des OB. Öst. Landesverkersamtes.” This translates to “Honorary prize from the (OB)? Eastern County Traffic Office.” This was the agency sponsoring the event. The figurine is 9 inches high, and the basis 3 1/2 inches in diameter. It is hand painted under the glaze. She makes for a very attractive piece of folk art.

Album Put Together Commemorating an NS Family’s Trip to Berlin (Item GEN 12-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a large album that was assembled by a family who made a trip from the city of Bremen to the Reich’s capital of Berlin to attend a party function just outside Berlin. They made various stops on the way to visit relatives and they visited various historical sites around Berlin as well such as Sanssouci, the estate of Frederick the Great, and the famous windmill on the grounds of the Neu-Palis. They photographed some of the lovely statues and attended a Trachtenfest at a dairy farm. Swastika flags are pictured hanging from the windowsill of various buildings in the towns and small dorfs. When they reach the destination you will see marching units of SA men, veterans, maiden units, marching bands all in uniform or costume proudly parading through the cobblestone streets of the tiny farming community. There are various notes about historic things they viewed the Potsdam Garnisson Church is shown with a picture of the “Alte Fritz” Frederick II. The famed Brandenburg Gate is a feature of their photo efforts and the Berlin Siegesdenkmal, and the Reichstag building. The national cathedral is included. A full-page picture of the first of May celebration is astounding with thousands and thousands of assembled patriotic people. Especially interesting are seven pictures of Graf Zeppelin flying over Berlin. These photos range in size from 3 x 2 1/4 to 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches. There are also pictures of an airport (Templehof?) and various airplanes in flight. There are many pictures of familiar things in Berlin. Many ceremonies in the Lustgarten are there including one with masses of SA men. In the front of the book is a map that lays out their trip. These folks were obviously German patriots; perhaps even party members. Alongside and under the pictures are pasted brightly illuminated swastika stickers that were sold by the roll in the 1930s for just this decorative purpose. We have other albums with these flag-type additions. This family used them in quite a few pages of the album. They are really quite neat looking. This album is large and measures 14 x 10 1/2 inches and is really loaded with interesting pictures. It is about one inch thick and in very nice condition. This is a great souvenir of the glory days of the German Reich.

Carved Wooden Bread Plate from the Third Reich (Item GEN 12-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is an NS takeoff on a Christian saying usually found on German bread plates. The Christian ones will say “Our daily bread, give us today!” This one says “The Reich's peace or freedom is our daily bread.” It is not anti-Christian; it is simply the saying of the times that gives Sprachgeist, or spiritual words. This is a heavy plate carved on oak with the sacred leaves and acorns of the oak in the center. This is typical of the Black Forest-style carving and artistic presentation. It’s 11 1/2 inches in diameter and is in good shape, other than the fact that it once was cracked in the section where the word “Taglich” would be. You can only see this from the back. It was expertly repaired and a repair is not noticeable from the front.

Anti-Jewish Beer Stein (Item GEN 12-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is an extreme rarity in it dates well before the Nazi regime. The thought is that this is something that was sponsored by the Thule Gesellschaft, a secret group that was virulently anti-Semitic and pro-Germanic. Many leaders of the NSDAP were early members of this organization. Its influence was felt throughout the publishing industry in a Germany that still felt the horrible sting of inflation and the Versailles Treaty. Rightly or wrongly, the blame was placed on the Jews, and such items like this beer stein were manufactured by major companies and found a ready market among the populace, who felt so betrayed and victimized. The way was clear for the march to National Socialism. This stein is truly rare and very much sought after today. In our many years in this field, we have only seen one other and that was in a museum collection. The stein would be banned and illegal in Germany today and in the years right after the war all but a few were destroyed. Today this relic is considered a treasured object of great historic interest, especially since the Thule Society was in a way the vanguard of the Nazi movement. The stein is like a book, so to speak. Around its body are cartoonlike fantasies in block form with each block containing humorous vignettes describing a robbery, theft, and defrauding of the “Deutsches Michel,” a character out of German saga and legend. He embodied the spirit of the German middle class similar to the American “uncle” or the British Tom Jones. The story unfolds as the Jewish merchants in the year 1893 sell items such as useless horses and phony stocks, making loans with unconscionable interest to the German burgers, and while Michel is asleep, they pick his pockets. In the bottom panels Michel is now awake and bans the rascals off to Jerusalem in 1910 and off they go with their money sacks; even the Baron Rothschild joins them. A sign says in the German: “DEUTSCHES HAUS JUDEN HABEN KEINEN ZUTRITT,” “To this house Jews have no entrance.” Another says: “Luck and jubilation ring in greater Germany now that the Jews are gone.” In one of the scenes, the newly arrived expellees are beginning to dance around and worship the golden calf. In one scene is the message: “KAUFT NICHT BEI JUDEN,” “Don’t buy from Jews.” This is the theme later seen on the placards of SA men standing in front of Jewish shops. In bands around the stein under the picture panels are various anti-Semitic sayings. In relief the references to Talmudic law are clear. Many might think all of this absurd; many will find it highly objectionable: but it is history and cannot be eradicated. The time did exist! The feelings were felt. History is a continuum. The observer must make up his or her own mind as to the message purported here. We offer it only as an important relic with a message from the past to be evaluated in academic research; a formulated opinion will be the result. The stein is about 8 1/4 inches high. It is a “Mustershutz” make or style, while the actual artwork and design was by a porcelain-art company that signed it. It was in Cologne. The lid or top of the stein and the handle bear portrait likenesses of the anti-Semitic leaders of a various organizations such as Thule, the ancient order of Teutons and the “Germanen Orden.” The pictures are set in round plaques surrounded by floral design. We cannot emphasize enough how very rare this beer stein is. It surely should be in a museum display. These are the times and objects that stirred men's souls!

The Wagner/Hitler Connection (Item GEN 12-8; WAG 1-5; AH 21-7)

DESCRIPTION: Richard Wagner und die Stadt der Meistersinger is a precious book produced to celebrate the 125th birth year of the immortal artist, Richard Wagner. It was published in 1938 and it was published with a foreword that was written by Richard Wilhelm Stock, producer of “Volksbuchs” for every German. He writes a foreword employing much in the way of comparing the great composer’s words and warnings about a Jewish menace in the arts that was carried into the policies of the NSDAP. The entire book has photos and references to Adolf Hitler's reverence and respect for the Wagner's and this the grandiose music of the master. Pictures of the Führer with Winifred Wagner, and also many of the party leaders are shown from visits to Bayreuth. Goebbels, Siebert, Ritter von Epp, Schwartz, Göring, Julius Streicher, and Amann are shown. The history of the family, the scenes from the operas, and musical scores are in beautifully produced photography. The book has 230 pages with a linen-like cover in perfect, practically mint condition. This is an extremely important historical volume. The grandsons and granddaughters posed with the Führer are perfect specimens of Aryan nobility as envisioned by National Socialist principles and agenda. The apparent parallels between Wagner's visions and the NS state are clear and concise. It's true that Wagner influenced Hitler throughout his entire life from the NS beginnings in the 1920s (“Siegfried’s Rhine Journey”) to the collapse of the Third Reich (“Götterdämmerung”). This is possibly the finest and most important book we have ever offered on Germania's site.

Nazi Pillbox or Lady’s Compact from the Kampfzeit Period (Item GEN 12-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a truly rare little tin piece that either was a lady’s compact or a pillbox. In any case, it's definitely Third Reich and important to the kitsch collections. It is not company marked. It bears the mobile swastika in the center with various geometrical designs under it with red and silver finish. This is a very typical Kampfzeit item (pre-1933). In 1935, all production of whatever the NSDAP considered kitsch ceased to be produced. The composition is tin and it is hinged measuring about 2 inches in diameter, and almost a half an inch deep. This is a curious little relic, but 100-percent original Third Reich.

DESCRIPTION: This is the class in bronze awarded to men and women between the ages of 18 and 32 who passed five parts of the national test within a 12-month period. In 1937 the badge that previously did not have a swastika was granted one and the control of all sports was placed under the NS Reichsbund für Leibesübungen (DRL) that you see in the center of the badge seen here. Some 86,000 badges in bronze were awarded. On the back of the badge is the DRGM and numbers 35269 and the maker’s name ‘Hensler’ in Pforzheim. Badge is in good shape with pin and catch intact and tight.

Butter Knife and Dinner Fork from Special NS Railroad Dining Car (Item GEN 12-11; GOR 9-7; AH 21-17)

DESCRIPTION: This is really a beautiful group of two railroad (Deutsches Reichsbahn) pieces of flatware. The veteran these came from said he personally looted them from the private dining car of Hermann Göring. The German National Rail System had a complete train called the Führerzug. That was the Führer Adolf Hitler’s personal train—Göring had two cars that were personally his. Instead of Hitler’s personalized formal-pattern flatware or Göring’s familiar armored arm with ring flatware the railcars for these two famous personalities had the national eagle and swastika with “DR” flanking it. This was used by both the Führer and Göring and their entourage and guests. So these two items could have been from time to time used by the Führer or the Reichsmarschal; however, the vet says that they were removed from Göring’s car. It’s not clear if they were removed from Göring’s cars or from one of Göring’s personal trains (Sonderzug). He had two of these personal trains; one was named “Der Robinson.” These pieces are considered much more rare than the formal or informal Göring or Hitler pieces that are more often seen. The fork is 8 1/4 inches long and is marked on the back with the crown, half moon, the eagle, and the ‘800’ for silver content. The butter knife measures 8 1/4 inches long also and is marked in the same way. Both pieces also are numbered ‘244’ (set placement codes for what service they are included in.) The eagle, swastika, and ‘DR’ appear at the end of each grip (raised). They are in immaculate condition.

Magazine BERLIN, ROM, TOKIO of the Kultur Institute in Berlin (Item GEN 12-12; JAPAN 2-9)

DESCRIPTION: The title BERLIN, ROME, TOKYO gives the idea behind the material. These are monthly issues that are beautifully illustrated with magnificent photography throughout. The drift was to promote understanding and admiration of the partners of NS Germany among the German people. It had a very limited circulation in that it was only issued to members of the Kulterellen Beziehungen der Volker des Weltpolitishen Dreiecks. You almost never see an issue for sale at shows or on web sites. They’re extremely rare. Almost every issue has pictures of the NS leaders in full regalia and then featured pictures of the main subject of the month. These particular issues dated April 1943, Jan 1943, and Dec 1941 are partially devoted to Japanese art, history, and culture. The April 1943 one opens with a magnificent picture of Adolf Hitler walking between his Leibstandarte men who joyfully raise their arms in a salute to their leader. This was the occasion of his birthday April 20, 1943. There is also a great picture of Reichsaussenminister Johachim v. Ribbentrop with his little son, who lost his dad to the hangman’s noose in 1946 at Nuremberg. There are many other pictures of leaders and statesmen and then there’s the magnificent Japanese section. The magazines have quite a few great advertisements at the rear; many in brilliant color. The January issue is almost entirely devoted to Japanese subjects and the December 1941 issue has Italian subjects as well as other diplomatic leaders—wonderful! This issue has some great Japanese art prints that are typical and gorgeous! So we offer as a group only these three rare issues of BERLIN, ROM, TOKIO. You won’t see any again in all probability. All are in top condition and considering their age this alone is spectacular. They are large-format books measuring 14 /2 x 10 1/2 inches. Don’t miss them. They are ultimately important.
